Rigorous Curriculum Design Information for Parents & GuardiansTop of Page

GSCS has implemented a three-year process to create curriculum guides using the Rigorous Curriculum Design (RCD) model. RCD is the district’s redesigned approach to delivering and monitoring instruction that directly affects student achievement, while cultivating “in-house” ownership of the curricula. With this model, teachers are able to focus on performance data to align lessons to meet their students’ needs, and administrators will be engaged in RCD data monitoring to ensure full implementation. GSCS currently offers curriculum guides for English Language Arts, Math and Science, and will add additional content areas over the next two years. RCD provides rigorous and relevant learning opportunities to improve student engagement in the classrooms, with the goal of preparing them for college, career and lifelong success.
